Pirelli MT21 (rear) review by WRdude

WRdude

Overview

Really impressed with the MT21's. The price is right and the performance on varying surfaces and terrain is excellent.

The rear did wear quite fast though and my bike is only a 250cc so people with bigger bikes that have a tendency to spin the back up will no doubt wear faster.

Also no punctures, same as the front :)
